This sounds crazy, but I don't think we are giving these guys enough credit, they caught us with our pants down. Despite how we like to paint them in contemporary society, Muslims are not incompetent cave dwellers, stuck in the dark ages. Even a quick study of Islamic history will demonstrate this. People like bin Laden have access to enormous amounts of wealth through connections with some of the world's richest people and organizations, as well as the old mujahadeen fighters from the 80s and 90s. As a result, they have access to training, weapons, and sophisticated communication networks that allow them to organize and carry out such attacks.
But it really wasn't that complex: hijack some planes and crash them. The hijackers easily got through security and took control of some planes and crashed them. And since air travel was extremely lax (you could carry-on blades under 4", as well as screwdrivers and all kinds of other shit that could be used as weapons), they had very little trouble in getting past security. There is nothing incredibly original about this plan; terrorist groups have been wanting to hijack planes to crash into buildings since the advent of air travel.
YES - 4
NO - 34
lol, I was right!
Don't be so happy about majorities. They don't always mean what you think.
EDIT: I know you're trolling, but I was bored. This is the last time I'll be looking at this thread.
Unfortunately, I don't trust Clinton, Obama or McCain either. This election really sucks. I thought it couldn't get any worse than Kerry vs Bush but fuck!

Because the first scenerio makes much more sense anyway you look at it. I don't see how the controlled demo theory is remotely plausible. So many problems with that idea from a technical standpoint and just logistically. The whole time they were planning no one said "Hey, lets just crash the planes and leave it at that. The buildings will sustain enough so we can demo them if they don't come down on their own."
Good god, I just wasted so much time reading this thread. It's like fucking arguing with my roommate. All these theories are based on anecdotal evidence.
This man would disagree.
I gave in...part of the system now.
